I've heard a couple of shows by The Ditty Bops

http://www.archive.org/audio/etreelisting-browse.php?collection=etree&cat=The%20Ditty%20Bops

that I've liked a lot. It's sort of folk/cabaret/bluegrass/acoustic stuff, with really good vocals, lyrics that are interesting to listen to, and a fun show vibe; the songs are pretty short (3-4 mins), too.

Shameless plug: I've taped a bunch of shows by Toronto afrobeat band Mr. Something Something

and I like their stuff a lot. Heavy-duty rhythms, great saxophone, and a frontman/singer that occasionally verges on performance art.

And, for straight-up rock, you have to check out Ween:

I especially recommend 2003-10-31:

Thanks for the heads up on the Ditty Bops - I didn't realize they were on the archive! I haven't heard much by them, but I will be seeing them in a couple months opening for Nickel Creek.

I'm biased, but I'd suggest you check out Greyspoke Variety. Especially the August show from 2005
